I am on XF 1.5.13 and EDGE 1.5.12. I am going to update to XF 1.5.14 and EDGE 1.5.14. Should I first update to EDGE 1.5.13, or it is okaty to jump to 1.5.14 from 1.5.12 (of EDGE) after I update my XF to 1.5.14?

The way I have seen Russ explain it you would need to upgrade to 1.5.13 first since it's a pretty big update then upgrade to 1.5.14

Thanks @Russ. Just being over-cautious, can you please confirm if the following steps should be okay:

Currently I have XF 1.5.13, XB 1.5.12, EDGE 1.5.12

Update steps:
1. Update to XF 1.5.14
2. Update XB to 1.5.14 (e.g. skipping 1.5.13)
3. Update EDGE to 1.5.14 (e.g. skipping 1.5.13)

And yes, I have read the common issues in 1.5.13 threads, I just want to make sure skipping XB and EDGE 1.5.13 is not going to cause any issue.

Perfect (y), just export your styles prior to doing anything so you can revert back if you need too.

I did my very first XenForo upgrades tonight. First was upgrading XF and XFMG, then my styles. It went pretty smooth, but I was nervous as hell, since it was my first time. I did plenty of vB upgrades over 11 years. I can't say this was easier, but it certainly was faster. Next time will be easier (well, maybe not, if it's to upgrade to XF2) because I will know what to expect. But I had to read the instructions for everything like a half a dozen times before I did each step.

Done and it appears to be just as it should be. Thanks for a great product.
